Brnabic assessed that relations between the People’s Republic of China and Serbia are remarkable and characterized by a comprehensive strategic partnership and “steel friendship”.
She stressed that Serbia very much appreciates the support provided by China on the political and economic level, and especially expressed gratitude on the consistent position and continuous support on the issue of Kosovo and Metohija.
Sun pointed out that China and Serbia are friendly countries characterized by excellent cooperation, stressing that this is the reason why he signed the Memorandum of Understanding with the Serbian Ministry of Labour, Veteran and Social Affairs first.
